New Kontron Panel-PC with IP69K

FlatClient HYG in hygienical stainless steel housing

30. November 2018

Introducing the FlatClient HYG, Kontron presents a flexibly adaptable Panel PC in a stainless steel housing with IP69K protection class. Depending on requirements and customer wishes, specific adaptations can be made.

Designed according to EHEDG guidelines (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group), the latest member of the FlatClient Panel PC family features a maximum protection class with IP69K. These specifications qualify the new FlatClient HYG for use in sensitive hygienic scenarios, in the food and pharmaceutical industry as well as in clean rooms of semiconductor manufacturing plants, in optics and laser technology, life sciences and nanotechnology. The robust basic design enables operation next to dirt-generating manufacturing machines. In addition to the Panel PC series, the new family of HMI products also includes an industrial-grade monitor version with up to IP69K, the FlatView HYG.

The FlatClient HYG with a stainless steel housing and a support arm is IP69K protected. A cost-optimized system variant with VESA 100 offers IP68 protection and enables power cabling via M12 connectors or cable glands. All versions have a smooth, seamless display surface for perfect cleanability. Its IP69K protection makes the new Panel PC also suited for washdown applications like high-pressure cleaning. The PCAP touch display clearly distinguishes legitimate control inputs, even with gloves, from errors like the impact of water drops (water drop rejection) or the accidental touching of the display with the entire palm of the hand (palm rejection).

Due to its symmetrical design, the 21-inch Full HD display can be operated in both portrait and landscape format. Display sizes of 15.6 to 23.8 inches with resolutions between 1366x768 and 1920x1080 Full HD in 16:9 or 16:10 wide format are available. All versions are also consignable with high brightness displays. The FlatClient HYG is also available with PoE technology (Power over Ethernet), enabling network connection and power supply of the Panel PC with just a single cable. The ECO line is available with either Intel® Celeron® Quad Core™ J1900 or Intel® Pentium® Quad Core™ N4200 processors, the PRO line is available with Intel® Core™ i5-6300U or Intel® Core™ i5-7300U processors. The FlatClient HYG has 4 GByte DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM. Additional processor types, added memory or a SSD drive with up to 1 TB capacity can be configured. The FlatClient HYG is designed for fanless operation at temperatures between 0 and 50 degrees Celsius. The relevant operating systems are Windows 7, Windows 10 IoT or Linux, depending on the version.
